TV Review: Eastbound & Down

Eastbound and Down is a show on HBO that is about a Professional Baseball player and his fall from fame and how he copes with it plus all the shenanigans he gets into. I must warn you however, it is extremely vulgar so if you are faint of heart you shouldn't watch this. There is some nudity, explicit language, and sexual content. All on top of drug use and Alcohol use. Now this sound like a recipe for something good. The comedy in this show does not come from over the top situations, no. It comes from the characters

Take Kenny Powers for instance, the shows main character. He is a Vulgar ex-major leaguer trying to get himself back on top all the while coping with being down on the bottom. He is played by the insanely hilarious Danny McBride, who has been in movies such as Pineapple Express, Hot Rod and Tropic Thunder. I really cannot talk to much about this character without giving away spoilers so I will avoid doing so. But with that being said, his character is definitely my favorite. He just has an attitude of a winner. He is a champion. and a winner. Has he paid for sex before? Yes he has, and it was great. His words, not mine.

Some of the supporting characters are played by Katy Mixon (love interest)

John Hawkes (Kenny's Brother)

even Will Ferrel and Craig Robinson are characters in the show. The last two characters can be seen in this:

All and All I give this show a 9.3 out of 10
